Labor market minister Johan Pehrson will invest the money from the sale in a newly started company that he himself owns 100 percent of.

- As a result of being a minister, I have left the company in which I previously owned a share, KB 18. I have sold the shares and will invest in an index fund in the new company, he tells the newspaper.

Pehrson was questioned because the company he was a co-owner of, among other things, ran a security company that offers security guards.

At the same time, the Liberals pushed for the state to pay 1.8 billion to municipalities that invest in municipal security guards.

This is what Johan Pehrson said about his ownership to SVT in May.
